Zorin OS 15.2 is Released: Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger.
With over 900,000 downloads since its release nine months ago, Zorin OS 15 has been our biggest and most advanced release ever. 2 in every 3 of these downloads were coming from Windows and macOS, reflecting our mission to bring the power of Linux to people who’ve never had access to it before. None of this could be possible without the help of you – the community – who have spread the word and helped the project to grow. We would like to thank all of you for making this release as enormous as it has been!
Today we’re introducing Zorin OS 15.2. With this new release, we’ve focused on refining the foundation of Zorin OS: its core technologies and software stack. This allows us to provide you with an even faster, more secure, and powerful computing experience.
Stronger security and hardware compatibility
Many of the built-in system technologies have seen improvements for better security, compatibility, and performance. Zorin OS 15.2 is now powered by Linux Kernel version 5.3, which introduces new security patches, so you can have the peace of mind knowing that you’re using the most secure version of Zorin OS ever. In addition, support for even more hardware has been included, such as:
- AMD Navi GPUs, including the Radeon RX 5700
- Intel 10th generation processors
- Newer MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards and touchpads
After installing Zorin OS 15.2, you will have the latest versions of the pre-installed packages. That means fewer software updates will need to be downloaded after installing Zorin OS onto your computer. Newer versions of apps such as LibreOffice and the GNU Image Manipulation Program have been introduced, so you can take your work and creativity further.
